Hi chris, with just the limited info you posted on this problem, I would say that when the alarm was installed, it was tied into one of the "hot" tail light wires. Tail lights and dash lights usually are together. Might have blowed the fuse for the tail lights, pull it and check it. Was this a do-it-yourself, or professionally installed? If professional, take it back and have them do it right before something gets shorted out,,, Hope this helps you out,, let us know. thanks, Mechanic

Why isnt my tail lights or dash light not working but headlights and break lights are working on my 1998 Nissan altima?

Hi, the basic elec. Design. Of auto lighting circuits is based on this concept. Dash lights and tail lights use the same feed, For example, if a dash light. Was shorted, you will lose dash and tail lights, Assuming. your stereo has the factory system, this is where. I would start. First chk your fuses, if they are ok, your. issue. may be your dash dimmer,, or worse cas, your muttifunction switch may be def.

If the tail lights and the dash lights stopped working and the tail light and the panel lighting fuses are both o.k. and you can find no other blown fuses then the problem is most likely the headlight switch.

99 Chevy Venture dash board lights and tail lights

So are the fuses getting power, they should be labeled. like tail or ctsy, or inst? The dash lights are usually 5 amps. You will need to get a wiring diagram to ck it out. but you may need to start by looking at the headlamp switch. I cant believe any GM dealer could not help you. Forget anyone from a auto parts store being any help. I can ck tomorrow when at work for a diagram.

Tail lights and dash lights

You'll have to read through your owners manual. For some time Auto makers have been putting your taillights on the same fuse as your dash lights as an automatic indicator that they are out. I would read through your owners manual and decided where and what fuse will supply power to the taillights and dash lights. If indeed all fuses in connection with the dash lights are good I would suspect the automatic starter.
